Halloween is an American slasher film directed by David Gordon Green and written by Green, Jeff Fradley, and Danny McBride.

A finance company will pay an individual $1,300 to watch 13 scary movies in October, in an effort to find out whether the size of a movie's budget impacts its effectiveness.

FinanceBuzz is looking to hire someone to be a Horror Movie Heart Rate Analyst. The person will watch 13 of the scariest movies ever made while monitoring their heart rate using Fitbit, the company said in a news release.

"In honor of the upcoming spooky season, we at FinanceBuzz are dying to know whether or not high-budget horror movies deliver stronger scares than low-budget ones," the release said.

"You'll help us discover whether or not a movie's budget impacts just how dread-inducing it can be by wearing a Fitbit to monitor your heart rate while you work your way through the list of 13 movies."

The chosen participant is required to watch the following films between October 9 until October 18: Saw, Amityville Horror, A Quiet Place, A Quiet Place Part 2, Candyman, Insidious, The Blair Witch Project, Sinister, Get Out, The Purge, Halloween (2018), Paranormal Activity and Annabelle.

FinanceBuzz will provide the new analyst with a Fitbit tracker along with $1,300 and a $50 gift card to cover the rental costs of the fright fest.

To apply, those interested have to fill out a form and tell the company why they are the best person for the job.

Applications are due by September 26, and FinanceBuzz will pick a winner by October 1.

Most of the words in this quirky comedy are in French, even in the credits, but it doesn’t matter because the various jobs are so cleverly visualized as a camera roams around objects in a dingy basement. The cinematographer’s name is written on a camera and the screenwriters’ on a page of a script.

This series joins the Bond films as one where the audience knows they need to be there for the inventive credits. All of ’em are dandy, but the first is the best because it introduces Henry Mancini’s slinky theme and has so much fun with typography.

They’re the first thing in a movie and they’re packed with information, but we rarely know much about them.

As a variation on Nine Inch Nails’ “Closer” plays, we’re shown the villain’s fingers as he reads a book about crime, thumbs through creepy photographs, cuts up a dollar bill and (I think) slices off the tips of his own fingers. There’s no blood, but Cooper’s jittery editing, ominous images and percussive music suit director David Fincher’s bleak vision.

The Marvel logo is bound to send audiences in one direction, so this parody of superhero movies immediately takes them in another direction by spoofing the idea of credits. Instead of “A Tim Miller Film,” we get “Some Douchebag’s Film.” It’s not “Starring Ryan Reynolds” but “Starring God’s Perfect Idiot,” accompanied by Reynolds’ “Sexiest Man Alive” magazine cover. It continues skewering tropes, through “British Villain” and “Moody Teen,” accompanied by a camera snaking through a violent scene and Juice Newton’s soaring “Angel of the Morning.”
